So Mike and I went to visit our new puppy on Saturday.
We actually got to pick her out. I thought it was going to be a really hard decision...
Charity showed us the three available females that she had. The first one was a rolly poly little thing, very sleepy. The second one was very similar. It was their nap time so they weren't very active. The first one was four weeks old and the second was exactly two weeks. Anyway they were both ridiculously cute. As she was showing us the second puppy she mentioned that she also had a female runt with that litter. Then she pulled out this tiny little baby puppy, that was half the size of her sisters and brothers. She literally fit into the palm of my hand.
So almost immediately we knew that we wanted her. We both have a thing for the "underdog." (No pun intended.) We also loved her markings which aren't the markings of an average Boston Terrier. One side of her face is black and the other is left white with some black splotches. I took some pictures but it seems the camera wanted to focus on the little girl instead of the puppy...
The tentative pick up date is November 9th, but Charity might keep her a little longer because she is so little. She said she will probably start catching up to her other siblings as soon as she is de-wormed and has a chance to really start eating.
We are both really excited about her. It will be so nice to have a little companion around.
